This instrument is specialized for creating artificial nanoscale structures on an atom-by-atom basis using nascent atom manipulation techniques. The instrument will be used to investigate the amount of force required to move one atom on a materials surface while simultaneously measuring local electronic structural changes during atom movement. Requirements for this instrument include: simultaneous measurements of tunneling current and force signals at an atomic scale, STM scanner with q-Plus tuning fork type AFM set-up, single atom and single molecule manipulation capabilities, single atom/molecule tunneling spectroscopy, ultrahigh vacuum compatibility, bath cryostat with LHe hold time greater than 72 hours and a LN2 hold time greater than 72 hours, optical access at low temperature, at least 6 K substrate temperature should be achieved, VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:27 Aug 29, 2012 Jkt 226001 [A–570–912; C–570–913; A–570–910; C– 570–911; A–570–916: C–570–917; A–570– 914; C–570–915] Implementation of Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act: Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires; Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe; Laminated Woven Sacks; and LightWalled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From the People’s Republic of China Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: On August 21, 2012, the U.S. Trade Representative (‘‘USTR’’) instructed the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) to implement its determinations under section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (‘‘URAA’’) regarding the antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires (‘‘OTR Tires’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), circular welded carbon quality steel pipe (‘‘CWP’’) from the PRC, laminated woven sacks (‘‘Sacks’’) from the PRC, and light-walled rectangular pipe and tube (‘‘LWRPT’’) from the PRC, which renders them not inconsistent with the World Trade Organization (‘‘WTO’’) dispute settlement findings in United States—Definitive Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties on Certain Products from China, WT/DS379/AB/R (March 11, 2011) (‘‘DS 379’’). The Department issued its final determinations in these section 129 proceedings on July 31, 2012.1 The AGENCY: 1 See Memoranda from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated July 31, 2012, regarding: (1) Final Determinations: Section 129 Proceedings Pursuant to the WTO Appellate Body’s Findings in WTO DS 379 Regarding the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations of Certain New Pneumatic Offthe-Road Tires from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘OTR Tires Section 129 Final Determinations’’); (2) Final Determinations: Section 129 Proceedings Pursuant to the WTO Appellate Body’s Findings in PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52683 Department is now implementing these final determinations. DATES: Effective Date: August 21, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Daniel Calhoun, Christopher Mutz, or Mark Hoadley, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–1439, (202) 482– 0235, or (202) 482–3148, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 22, 2011, the Department informed interested parties that it was initiating proceedings under section 129 of the URAA to implement the findings of the WTO dispute settlement panel in DS 379 with regard to the countervailing duty (‘‘CVD’’) investigations on OTR Tires and Sacks from the PRC. On September 27, 2011, the Department informed interested parties that it was initiating proceedings under section 129 of the URAA to implement the findings of the WTO dispute settlement panel in DS 379 with regard to the CVD investigations on CWP and LWRPT from the PRC. On May 14, 2012, the Department informed interested parties that it was initiating proceedings under section 129 of the URAA to implement the findings of the WTO dispute settlement panel in DS 379 with regard to the antidumping duty (‘‘AD’’) investigations on CWP, LWRPT, OTR Tires, and Sacks from the PRC. Given the number and complexity of the issues involved, the Department addressed the Dispute Settlement Body’s findings through separate preliminary determination memoranda with respect to each of the issues addressed in WTO DS 379. Specifically, the Department issued the preliminary determinations regarding: A. Loan benchmarks on April 6, 2012;2 WTO DS 379 Regarding the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations of Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘CWP Section 129 Final Determinations’’); (3) Final Determinations: Section 129 Proceedings Pursuant to the WTO Appellate Body’s Findings in WTO DS 379 Regarding the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations of Laminated Woven Sacks from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘Sacks Section 129 Final Determinations’’); and (4) Final Determinations: Section 129 Proceedings Pursuant to the WTO Appellate Body’s Findings in WTO DS 379 Regarding the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations of Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘LWRPT Section 129 Final Determinations’’). 2 See Memorandum for Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ‘‘Preliminary Section 129 Determination of the Countervailing Duty Investigation of Certain New Pneumatic Offthe-Road Tires from the People’s Republic of China (PRC); Definitive Anti-Dumping and Countervailing E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM Continued 30AUN1
